Tony Gareri was excited to be invited back for a third time, to speak to entrepreneurship students at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ontario.
Founded in 2002, UOIT offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programs in science, engineering, health, business and information technology.
The theme of the course was entrepreneurial culture in a family business. Tony shared with over 100 students the importance of entrepreneurship and happiness in the workplace.
Gareri’s presentation was titled “Anything is Possible”. It inspired students to think about the value of happiness in their careers. His talk focused on the importance of choice. Your career, your family and friends, are all choices, and making the right decisions can have powerful and positive impacts in your life.
“I’m passionate about sharing insights and information that I rarely received when I sat in their position. Having the ability to share my message about the power of choice and the ability to create the world’s happiest workplace, was truly an honour.” said Gareri. “The connection between happy team members and incredible company results can’t be faked. Service, sales, innovation, creativity, and commitment are all influenced by how motivated, and ultimately how happy your teams are!”
“Tony is amazing, the content is excellent, his delivery, presentation, I cant say enough about it.” said their professor Michael Konopaski. He captures the audience’s attention with a simple presentation style. He isn’t trying to wow people with flashy things, he wows them with content, advice and direction! If the students had to draw a picture of what Tony’s presentation looked like, they would have drawn a Superhero of Happiness for the People.”
